Getting DailyTask to work

I have a simple function set up for a Daily Scheduled Task. It was difficult to find info on this topic, but I pieced together enough to get me real close. I know the task works because it tests ok when I run

I've setup a cron job that looks like this: */1 * * * * /usr/bin/php-cgi /path/to/my/site/sapphire/cli-script.php DailyTask I set it up for every minute just for testing purposes. The email log that I receive stats this, "Please specify an argument to cli-script.php/sake. For more information, visit" I tried setting up the _ss_environment.php file according to the info there and here - but to no success. My _ss_environment.php looks like this

$_FILE_TO_URL_MAPPING['/path/to/my/site'] = '';

I'm running low on ideas, any help would be very much appreciated.

For completion sake, I got this to run thanks to some folks in the IRC with the following...

*/1 * * * * cd /path/to/my/site usr/bin/php-cgi && php sapphire/cli-script.php DailyTask

I'm on php 5.1.x so that's why I think it was failing.
